UFCGlover Teixeira of Brazil crushed Jan Blachowicz of Poland in a light heavyweight title session at UFC 267 Saturday at the Octagon on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
The 42-year-old Teixeira, who holds the UFC record-breaking records for most entries and completions in the light heavyweight division, was relied upon to confront Błachowicz September 25 at UFC 266 however the session was delayed and moved to Saturday.
Błachowicz was making his second protection of his title, having beaten Israel Adesanya in March by consistent choice, while it was Teixeira’s second shot at a UFC title subsequent to being crushed seven years prior in a title battle against Jon Jones.
The UFC said Teixeira had crushed Blachowicz by means of accommodation to turn into the second most established hero in UFC history.
“Teixeira got a takedown in the initial moment and went to work,” the UFC said in its post-match report. It said at the halfway point Teixeira took the battle to mat “and in the wake of taking Blachowicz’ back, he soaked in the back exposed stifle that constrained Blachowicz to tap out at 3:02 of the second round.”
At a post-match news gathering, Teixeira said he felt “astonishing” after his success.
“This is the thing that I’ve imagined for, for quite a long time,” he said.
He said there was a period he thought he’d never be a hero yet continued to prepare. “I love it, I continue to accept, I train myself the manner in which I need to do it. I own this child.”
The UFC has been facilitating occasions in Abu Dhabi because of the Covid pandemic and the limitations that have come about because of it.
In June last year, UFC President Dana White picked Yas Island to guarantee a protected climate, where the Department of Culture and Tourism for Abu Dhabi fixed off the almost 10-square-mile (25 km) island, which incorporated a field, inn, preparing offices and eating foundations.
